. . . actually imaginative visual art
High school and graduation for a clown is full of pranks, jokes and good old fashioned humor. Along the left side of the piece are all of the different things a clown has participated in during their time in high school. An embedded silhouette of a graduate breaks the page and visually stops the pranks until you see the options that are left to them after they graduate.
One joke about getting married is that the wife can ask her husband to do any task and he will agree. This piece is a tribute to that idea. Inside each of the letters of the word "yes" are random requests that she could ask. Underneath that is the word "dear" with kiss prints all over it. They symbolize the "payment" for all of the requests.
Making a baby can be perceived in many different directions for a clown. The symbols for male and female are embedded into the paper positioned in a way that resembles the action of having sex. Inside the head, or egg, of the woman are variations of the term "having sex." Directly below the female are nine ellipses mirroring the nine months of pregnancy. And the result is a baby.
Even though death is a solemn occasion, the clown can always find the humor in it. The giant number 6 is embedded in the paper with the word "under" stenciled next to it. All over the paper in different places are groups of six feet stamped on the page. From a distance they resemble fallen leaves but when you look closer the feet are clearly visible which completes the visual pun. On the side of the 6 are different ways to describe dying, in a humorous way.
